a horrible message. michael's waiting on the phone from montana to tell us what he thinks. what do you think about this? >> well, as a former retail employee, i've seen shoplifters have more rights than the stores do. i have tried to stop shoplifters. i have stopped shoplifters. not a single one has been prosecuted. the big thing most stores worry about is if you touch a shoplifter, the shoplifter will turn around and sue you. >> let me ask this. having said that, that they often you think get away with it. why are you putting your life on the line? >> well, you know, sometimes it's worth it. because if more people went after the shoplifters, less shoplifters would be around. >> okay, all right. thank you. i guess thanks for risking your life like that. thanks for the phone call. we appreciate your perspective considering you're in the stores. more comments on my facebook page. joe said, i am an unarmed guard in the bank. i have been told many times, never chase anybody if there is a robbery. you never know if there is a gun. i don't want make that much money to risk my life or my job. carl
